Privacy and Release of Information
State law requires the Houston Independent School District (HISD) to maintain an education record for each student attending its schools. These records contain identifying data pertaining to the student, and may include information concerning demographics, grades, attendance, health, discipline, guidance, assessment, and appraisals. You may choose to protect your student's information so that it is not released as part of the District directory. Only a parent, guardian, or student over 18 who desires to not have directory information released should sign and return the form. The form is available in the Main Office, and has been sent as an attachment to the weekly blog notification email.

I am thrilled to announce that we will now offer electronic payment for many school-related fees.  Parents will be able to pay for items across departments with one check-out.  You can register for a SchoolPay account. It's easy!

Find the complete instructions on the brochure attached to the weekly blog notification email.

Swim Team Try-outs
Tryouts begin Monday at 6:00 p.m. at Lamar High School. Paperwork must be turned in before end of the school day in order to tryout. No paperwork will be accepted at tryouts.

Requesting Records for High School Applications
Students applying to HISD high school programs will not need a copy of their records. If however, you are applying for a private or charter school, or a public school outside of HISD, you may need a copy of your child's records to include with the application.  You will find a copy of the records request attached to the weekly blog post notification email, or you may get a copy of the form in the main office.  Please allow five school days for processing the records request.  Records will be sent home with the student in a sealed envelope.

Please join us celebrating our outstanding students and community at ChargerFest -carnival, fine arts performances, and International Fest, from 12-4 p.m. on Saturday, November 14.
